1 Community Health Evangelism (CHE) Dr. Tom Alley Director of Medical Services FAME “Partnering in Medical Evangelism”

2 Foundational Principles “Medical care is the doorway for evangelism…”

3 Prevention Greater emphasis on prevention instead of curative medicine Recognizes there will still be a need for curative medical care

4 Development Long term development instead of recurring acute relief Communities learn to develop long-term solutions rather than receiving short- term and short-lasting relief

5 Community Ownership Enhances dignity of people created in God’s image and ensures lasting results Help the local citizens identify their own problems and possible solutions Help them identify resources they have available in their community, as well as how to access outside resources which they do not have

6 Community Ownership Train and engage the local citizens at the “grassroots” in teaching people in their community and meeting community needs Active participation by the people of the community and use of participatory learning methods Mentor mature Christian leadership

7 Integration Integration of spiritual and physical ministry Addressing needs of the individual and the community holistically promotes well being of the individual physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and socially

8 Multiplication Principles which are transferable and thus result in multiplication into other communities, with the initiative coming from the people of the local community

9 Enduring Ministry The progress in a community becomes sustainable long- term without endless funding and people resources from the outside

10 Enduring Ministry Local volunteers are trained to serve as leaders, organizers, evangelists, and health educators focusing on disease prevention Focus on equipping of people rather than distributing handouts Avoid fostering dependence on foreign dollars and people
